Pros

if you find any let me know

Cons

management does not know how to talk to anyone or manage, they do not work with school or even real life issues, very secretive, and management actually enjoys firing people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

go to college and get some education on how to actually manage and motivate your employees

    Flexible work environment, but lacks quality engineers.

    I have been working at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * There is quite a bit of flexibility in how and where the work is done, as long as it is completed in a timely manner.
    * The pay is average/decent, although I can't speak for others at the company.

    Cons

    * Managment is often unaware of the difference between "quality" of engineering versus "quantity". That is, they believe that throwing more engineers on a job, can get it done faster. However many of these engineers are right out of college and located thousands of miles away in India, which makes joint development projects difficult at best.
    * Amount of vacation time stinks, it takes 5 years with the company to get the 3rd week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Look for quality engineers only, and when one is hired that can't cut the mustard, let them go.

    Former Employee - Network Manager in Enschede (Netherlands)
    Former Employee - Network Manager in Enschede (Netherlands)

    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was able to understand and learn how an international diverse organization used IPSec, a mix of Open Source and proprietary software and modern firewall technologies managed to create and maintain a very cost effective intercontinental network.

    Cons

    There was a rather difficult international political situation between the European and the US IT departments. This was caused by a lack of overall IT direction, the existence of a few ivory towers and several corporate acquisitions. Just before I left this issue was being addressed by fresh IT management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integration and cooperation!
